Airports in Sweden

Sweden currently has 41 active airports (in terms of number of passengers) among which half of them are also international airports. The busiest airport in Sweden is by far Stockholm-Arlanda Airport which has great connection with the rest of Swedish airports and it has regular domestic and international flights. Stockholm Arlanda is the most suitable airport if you are traveling to Stockholm region. If you are traveling to southern parts of Sweden, better choice would be Gothenburg or Malmö Airport (or even Copenhagen since it is a larger airport and it has a great connection with Sweden).
